Build your skills as an artist-activist at Near West Theatre.
As a community-driven organization, we are always open to conversations about what additional services we can provide, and how to make them possible. Our 2021-22 Season will feature virtual, in-person, and hybrid programming, based on the needs of the groups we serve. With the completion of our Black Box space behind us, NWT is planning to expand our free programming to adults. Check back soon for some exciting announcements!
